Quesadillas made of turkey? You can't fit no bird inside a tortilla! We know that's what at least someone out there is thinking and rest assured, there's no plucking involved here. Instead, meaty ground turkey and melty cheese combine inside a tortilla for lovely flavor. And for dipping? A fresh feisty salsa verde and smoky chipotle crema. Bird's the word!

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground turkey, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground turkey, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using flank steak, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as ground turkey in Step 3, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground turkey in Step 3, breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Salsa Verde

    Halve lime. Juice one half and quarter remaining half.

    Stem and mince cilantro.

    Quarter and peel onion. Mince one quarter. Slice remaining quarters into thin strips.

    Stem jalapeño, halve, seed, remove ribs, and mince. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.

    In a mixing bowl, combine cilantro, jalapeño (to taste), minced onion, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, a pinch of salt, and 2 tsp. water. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Start the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add onion strips to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender and lightly browned, 6-8 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer onion to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Finish the Filling

    Return pan used to cook onion to medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray.

    Add ground turkey, seasoning blend, and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Stir in cooked onion until combined.

  4. 4

    Assemble the Quesadillas

    Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Divide half the cheese between tortillas, placing on one side. Top with filling, then remaining cheese.

    Fold tortilla over filling and press gently so it holds in place.

    Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Cook Quesadillas and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook filling to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil to hot pan. Working in batches, place two or three quesadillas in pan (there should be no overlap). Cook until golden brown, 2-4 minutes per side.

    Repeat with remaining quesadillas, adding 1 tsp. olive oil for each batch.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, serving salsa verde and crema on side for dipping. You may also dollop crema on quesadillas. Squeeze lime wedges over quesadillas to taste. Bon appétit!
